The SoSo Def 20th Anniversary concert
hit Atlanta over the weekend and people are still talking about the controversy surrounding Xscape
As you know, the 90’s girl group once consisted of sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott, as well as Kandi Burruss and Tameka “Tiny” Harris but things changed after a bit of internal disagreements within the group.
Kandi, who has gone on to earn awards with her songwriting expertise and is now a real “housewife” of Atlanta, explained a while back that she’s NEVER revisiting her past and has pretty much said that her days with Xscape are gone.

Tiny, on the other hand is rumored to be on the fence about the situation. I’ve heard that she would reunite with the group only if Kandi would… (and we already know that ain’t happ’nan).

Jermaine Dupri is gearing up for his SoSo Def 20th Anniversary concert and kicked things off with a private dinner with many of the artists that made his label great (February 21, 2013).
I’ve heard that tickets to the upcoming concert aren’t selling as fast as they would like, but the gang is still optimistic about the weekend’s festivities.
Artists such as Bow Wow and Chris Kelly of Kris Kross (who happened to have just met for the first time last night), Da Brat, Jagged Edge, LaTocha and Tamika Scott (Xscape), Dondria, Bonecrusher, Youngbloodz, Dem Franchize Boyz all broke bread in anticipation of the upcoming festivities.
Veteran music exec Michael Mauldin (JD’s father) as well as his Mom and daughter Shaniah also attended to show support.

Yes… she’s still around, but every since Kandi Burruss made it quite clear that there will NEVER be an Xscape reunion (click here if you missed that), it seems the other ladies in the group can’t catch a break.
LaTocha’s still grinding though and even released a new single a while ago…

Love & Hip Hop Atlanta‘s Joseline Hernandez & Stevie J were spotted boo’d up at the August edition of ATL Live on the Park a few days ago (August 13, 2012).

Remember Latocha Scott
[FLASHBACK: Where were you when you first heard Xscape’s “Understanding”? VIDEO]
Well, the former Xscape front woman is back with a new single entitled, “Complicated,” featuring Wale.
The track is from Tocha’s forthcoming mixtape Truth N’ The Booth and the song attempts to take us back to old school R&B with the vocalist singing about how the feelings she has for her man are “Complicated.”
The song was written by Lundon & Chef Tone & produced by friend Grammy Award winning DJ Toomp (Heeeey Toompie!).
